I believe that one of the rep's from FN stated that the shelf life of SS195 is the same as all others, indefinite.Mark Ducati said:Since y'all are soooo much smarter than me, perhaps you may care to comment up this "myth"....
Supposedly, the SS195LF ammo has a primer with a 10 year shelf life.... something about how the primer is made with out lead, it still goes bang when struck, but degrades over time.
I just a dumb old country dentist... but fer me and my boys, we're stockin' up on SS197 when given the chance.

I still don't understand why ppl don't think the ps90 is one of the greatest self defence/ tactical assault weapon systems out there.The 195 has better wound characteristics....it was designed as a civilian available defensive round to replace the ss192, while the 197 was designed as a practice round, or FN's words, a sporting round. Again, this is from FN.
not that I would grab the PS90 in a self defense situation anyway, but just saying :lol:
I agree.elcid11 said:I still don't understand why ppl don't think the ps90 is one of the greatest self defence/ tactical assault weapon systems out there.
The 197 rules as a personal defence round..I have shot it at coconuts/watermelons...and a big thing of beef hash...lol it rules...very impressive results.
The 195 is also way cool and it does go through a bullet proof vest...again, tried it out and very impressed.
